Calling for a comprehensive EU policy response to improve the cardiovascular health of European citizens 

Calling for a comprehensive EU policy response to improve the cardiovascular health of European citizens 

EACH brings together the leading health organisations, including SAFE, with an interest to promote policy action and investment to improve the cardiovascular health of European citizens.

EACH submitted a proposal to the Commission for a Joint Action on secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease for the EU4Health 2022 work programme. Secondary prevention helps to detect cardiovascular disease at an early stage, for example, through targeted screening in risk groups. By diagnosing at an early stage and ensuring appropriate referral and treatment, further development of the disease can be halted, helping to reduce morbidity and mortality. The EU4Health Joint Action will support Member States and the EU to raise awareness of the disease, improve data collection, share best practices and identify measures to promote secondary prevention.
